Complete White Card Training Online Today

With all the positions available for construction workers, there are a number of opportunities across the country, whether you’re an experienced tradesperson or straight out of high school. Before applying for a full time job or casual employment, or even an apprenticeship in the construction industry, it’s a good idea to complete mandatory induction training first.

The White Card is the mandatory construction induction course that everyone in Australia involved in construction work must complete.

The simplest way to complete this training, which is preferred by most construction workers, is by completing an online course.

 The expediency of the online white card course cannot be beaten by traditional face-to-face forms of training which have become outdated and too time-consuming for modern students.

Besides the additional costs, traditionally forms of training also take a lot more time to complete.

Because your actions on the site can have far reaching effects, not only on the health and safety of your co-workers but on the safety of the public, you must be able to work safely in the midst of heavy machinery, confined spaces, high risk work processes etc.

Whether you plan on working as a plumber, roofer, engineer, mason or even a landscapist, if you work on construction sites, you must be in possession of a white card.

The white card is like your passport onto a construction site. It is a small credit card sized ID that proves you’ve fulfilled the mandatory federal requirement and completed construction induction training.

Housing Construction Sector In Wa Thriving

Numerous reports have pointed to a looming skills shortage in the construction industry, the consequences of which could present a threat to thousands of construction projects between now and 2019. Some experts have predicted that by 2019 the skills shortage could put at least 27,000 construction projects at risk across the country.

Problems associated with skills shortages in the construction industry is expected to peak in the next five years and may result in contractors turning down lucrative projects.

Some of the skills that are in high demand include surveyors and bricklayers. The demand for skills is expected to soon outstrip supply if we don’t see improvement in skilled labour numbers.

The demand for housing as well as the booming infrastructure construction sector which is enjoying a healthy pipeline of projects in the near future, may result in many builders not being able to fulfil their demands.

There are fears that a lack of suitably qualified workers may threaten thousands of projects in the pipeline over the next few years.

Experienced professionals, builders, contractors and other tradespeople are being encouraged to invest in training. Recruiting and training apprentices, is one way we can invest in the future of the industry, as well as retaining existing employees by keeping them happy on the job site, perhaps averting the problems related to skills shortages.

In Australia there has been a rise in the unemployment rate, so by recruiting workers into construction, we can address 2 major issues affecting the nation - unemployment and ashortage of construction workers.

Most potential construction workers are choosing to complete white card training online because it costs less and takes a lot less time to complete.
